Open Linked PDF Document

I have purchased the Tigra Tree Pro. I am using the mysql function to build the tree menu dynamically. It works great.

Now, the dumb question. By default, when you click on a node, a dialog box pops up with the link displayed in the box. Here's what I'm trying to do:

1. When you click on a folder or subfolder or it's text, the folder opens with no dialog box.

2. When you click on a file inside the folder or subfolder, the document opens in a separate browser window.

For instance, if I click on a link to a PDF document, it opens in a new browser window.

I don't want the dialog box but I can't figure out where this is controlled. Someone throw me a bone here and I'll figure it out.

I don't know of any dialogs in the tree, you're probably talking about new browser windows. This feature is controlled by 'target' parameter in the tree_tpl.js set it to _self if you want links opened in the same window/frame by default. Then you can override this global setting for any particular link with 'tw' item scope setting in the tree_items.js file. See docs and targeting sample in the distribution package for more details.
